Twisted-Fold Man Birthday

This week over at Our Creative Corner, they are holding a "fancy folds" challenge...I scoured the internet, SCS, SU! and finally found exactly my kind of card on YouTube! With the FAB tutorial HERE

I paired my fancy fold with the colors over at the ColourQ design blog 

and this is my manly soaring result. I love how all the colors came together so well on the card, at first I wasn't so sure and they seemed more in the 'guy' realm then the 'ladies', which is why I went all guy on this card...

For my clouds, I punched both scallop punches with a piece of heavy cardstock, set them on top of my white and then sponged around them. When I removed them, I had nice happy white spaces on my paper. The airplane has been cut out and popped up as well. And isn't that Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder just lovely?

SU! products used:

Stamps - Need For Speed
Paper - Island Indigo DSP, Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Soft Suede
Ink - Pumpkin Pie, Versa Mark, Basic Black, Island Indigo and Pool Party
Ribbon - Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding
Punch - 2-1/2" Circle, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle

I'm giving away blog candy this week, check my blog for DEETS! :)
